When Labour went Caracas

Following a Labour conference filled with bans, spending pledges, and a total economic revolution, the press picked up on some healthy Adam Smith Institute scepticism.

The Sun picked up on our analysis that Labour was now committed to spending more of our taxpayer cash than the Tories in every area (and send borrowing soaring again as they’ll struggle to raise the cash to meet their obligations).


The Telegraph picked up our reminder that Labour’s plans for an enforced four-day working week would mean people put back on the dole after a decade long period of growth in employment, and near record low unemployment.


And the Daily Mail quoted Matthew Kilcoyne warning that Labour’s experiments with our economy would end exactly the same way they do wherever in the world they’re tried: in disaster.
